Dorqui (2113) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 10, 2005
Much most plenty and creamy foam. Much supporter and of long duration. Yellow color lightly veiled, torbid and bubbly. Much prickly with a fine aroma. Dry and metallic taste, seems rust and mildew. Many pleasant.

omhper (19970) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2005
Bottled. Cloudy golden, small creamy head. Flowery aroma. Medium sweet with soft, dense mouthfeel. Intensely hoppy, notes of pear and pine, and a perfectly modelled malty body. Damn good!

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2005
Earthy in aroma, yet fantastically light overall, this is very balanced. It has some anise and other more gentle spicing, like a baby Deus or a more natural and pumped up Duvel. A lovely bit of pine, almost. Sparkling throughout.

Sammy (8939) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2005
Orange aroma. A large bulk of foam that took a quarter hour to condense into the brew itself. Malty and yeasty base, cookie sugar, creamy. Understated ginger, drop of clove and nutmeg Velverty smooth. Hops noticeable midway and through finish.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2005
33 cl bottle. Served in St. Bernardus chalice. Appearance is golden w/ big chunks of sediment. Medium head. The aroma is complex and spicy, w/ hops, slight sweetness, some fruitiness, and yeast. The flavor is complex as well: yeast, fruitiness, solid malt backbone, and assertive, bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Somewhat incoherent, but interesting nonetheless.

mucom (35) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2005
Light golden colored hazy beer with a big frothy head. Citrus, spice, yeast and fruit are resulting in an overwhelming aroma. The taste gives us fruityness, spices and a fresh bitterness. Alcohol and carbonation are well present. The afttertaste ends with a citric touch. Welldone, what a beer...

madsberg (10459) - Søborg, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2005
Bottled: Yet another of the beers I’ve been longing to taste. Tonight was the night, when BierKönig opened his new beershop in Copenhagen!! Is light golden coloured. Unclear. Has a huge off white fluffy head. Citrus, spice, yeast and fruit in the aroma. Flavour is citric, fruity and spicy as well. Has some obvious alcohol notes, but its not disturbing. Is crisp and refreshing . Medium bodied. Ends on a grapish note. This beers has all the typical De Dolle characteristics. Great.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - FEB 8, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2005 Light gold in color with a large and morphing head of white foam. Beautiful and incredibly fragrant aroma with hints of peach, pear, apple, banana, clove, strong yeast and perhaps a hint of coriander, though I doubt it was used. Coriander continues on suprisingly with big, bright fruit forward notes, especially apple and pear (skin mainly) along with hints of orange peel. Big, full body. Simply an incredible, world class beer in my opinion.
